Children Cry for
Named for tna Vacancy oa tba Democratic
The democratic city-township com
mittee last evening placed the name
of Henry Kinner on the the township
ticket to fill the vacancy occasioned
by tho withdrawal of John T. Staf
ford. The choice is a most excellent
one, Mr. Kinner being the right
kind cf a candidate exactly.
A year ago Mr. Kinner was
a candidate for assistant su
pervisor, but was defeated through
the series of combinations made
by the Collins push to insure
the reelection of Sinnet and Oberg.
Mr. Kinner is a representative citizen
and will make a supervisor in
whom the people may put their
trust. He is not one who w ill bo in
fluenced or guided by the designing
ring politicians and he will serve
broad interests of all tax payers on
The city-township committee is to
ha congratulated in having so wisely
provided for the unavoidable vacancy
on the ticket.
It is ao exaggeration to say that
this evening the patrons of the Bur
tis have one of the most inter
esting events known to the history of
that house. This will be the presen
tation of Sydney Grundy's world
famous "scx-sgainst-sex" drama.
"Sowing tho Wind," by Charles
I rohnian's celebrated cast of pol-
isnca players, ine reputation the
play made during its two hundred
and odd nights in New York, its 100
performances in Chicago, and its
brilliant successes all over the English-speaking
world has been com
mented on so extensively by the news
paper and nlagazine press that its
mention must have become trite to
every play-goer who keeps pace with
the news of the stac world.
The Baggage Check" is to be pre
sented at Harper s tncatre Sunday
evening. When speaking of farce
comedies the first question asked is
who is the cast? For it is a well
known fact that no farce amounts to
much without a strong company.
James T. Kelly, W. J. Sully, Charles
Morgan, Louis Martinetti, James T.
Marcu?, Lizzie Melrose, Lida Clarka
and the Nicohlas sisters are the prin
cipals and they all have well earned
reputations in the farce coined v
world. James T. Kelly was last seen
here in a "A Hail road Ticket" and is
well remembered for his clever talk
ing specialties, which keeps the
house in laughter the entire evening.
In Isa Con boy he has a character
suited to his peculiar methods, giv
ing turn the chance of his life for
comoday recitations, making the au
dience go home with the feeling
that they are sorry the performance
is over. The second act is a bright,
catchy satire on the steam laundry
business and gives Ihc pn'olic an idea
of what it means to want your wash
ing quick. The 20th century and
athletic girls. wttb. the famous
Thrilhy quadrille and merry single
specialties of the company'make a
splendid evening's entertainment,
which must be seen to be appreci
ated. Comlenited Testimony.
Charles B. Hood, broker and man

certifies that Dr. King's New Dis
covery has no equal as a cough rem
edy. J. D. Brown, proprietor St.
James hotel, Ft. Wayne, lnd., testi
fies that no was cured of a cough of
two years' standing, caused by la
grippe, by Dr. King's New Discovery.
B. F. Merrill, Baldwinsville, Mass..
says that he has used and recom
mended it and never knew it to fail
and would rather have it thaa anv
doctor, because it always cures.
